In our earlier post we had mentioned that due date for GSTR 4 has been extended to 31.08.2020 for FY 2019-20 vide notification 59/2020.
Now on the last day at 9:00 pm, CBIC has extended the due date for filing the same to 31.10.2020 vide notification 64/2020.
This is now a common behaviour of CBIC where it tends to always extend the due date on the last day and in last hour which irritates many people who are working hard all day to finish filing but server is not working and in the end when they are almost done due date is extended.
GSTR-4 is an annual return that has to be filed by a composition dealer paying tax as per provision of section 10.
Unlike a normal taxpayer who needs to furnish returns either monthly or quarterly, a dealer opting for the composition scheme is required to furnish only 1 return which is GSTR 4 once in a year by 30th of April, following a financial year.
GSTR 4 can only be filed online, no offline tool is available for same as of now.
Do remember like any other GST return it cannot be revised so do check your return properly before filing.
